Applause! A concert with a difference

On the 26th of February a group of Hunter Volunteer Entertainers celebrated their art and talents with their very own concert called "Applause". The concert was held at Newcastle City Town Hall and was supported by the Newcastle City Council. The concert featured the wonderful talents of International Choir, Happy Tappers, Allan James, Graeme Patterson, The Marshmallows, Art & Comedy, Hunter Welsh Folk Dancers, Valentines, Lemon Drops, Coastal Bootscooters, JD's World of Magic, Clare Josephine Gillis, Jean Bell and Italian Azzurri Choir.

Each week the entertainers listed in the HVC Volunteer Entertainers Directory provide their artistic talents for free, but usually their audiences are the residents of aged care facilities and nursing homes around the Hunter Region so it was great to be able to show off to the wider community and at the same time promote the availability of the Directory.

The directory lists over 60 acts and performers who freely give of their time each week for the benefit of the community. The concert was very successful and it is hoped that another concert will occur later in the year. Well done to all those who participated in this great event! <p>
